    I see that the House Republican Caucus freak show is still going on. Well, maybe there's a workaround solution to temporarily solve the problem that's at hand. If one of the following options is actually tried (because it's necessary to do something), I can already hear the conservative caterwauling that would ensue.

    It doesn't have anything to do with communism.

    Wiggling, squirming, screaming......nope. The answer is to quit spending and pay off debt.

    Congress (both Republican-controlled and Democrat-controlled) has already spent the money. They just have to allocate the funds necessary to fulfull their prior obligations.

    Future spending is not even the issue here.

    Ask yourself a couple of important questions before you start knee jerking cliches stud.
    1. Do we need to put a cap on reckless federal spending?
    2. Would democrats, including Barry Hussein, even consider what has happened to the national debt in the last two years if republicans hadn't been elected to the majority in congress?
    3. Can we tax and spend our way out of this mess and continue to treat the private sector as if it was the enemy?
    While you are thinking of some clever media matters line I'll give you the answers, yes, no, no.

    About half of the current debt was run up by Bush and Republicans. So, get off your high horse.

    Saying Bush and the Republicans did something isnt exactly a good reason to keep doing it.
